Disorder can’t hold Kid to Know back!

Kid to Know

GIBSON CITY — This Kid to Know was recommended by his teachers at GCMS Middle School.

Alex Killian is an 8th grader who is a big part of the school’s scholastic bowl team. He also went to state for the geography bee two years in a row. He won every single competition they had.

But, not everyone knows Alex has cystic fibrosis. This vest shakes him and helps clear his lungs for a half-hour every morning. He also takes a slew of medicines throughout the day.

His teachers call him brave. Alex says it’s no big deal. Alex has had CF since he was a baby, so he says he’s never known anything else and takes it in stride.

His teachers also commented about his humbleness.
